Our Vision: Wisconsin’s
children are safe, nurtured and
supported to achieve their optimal mental health and well-being. Systems are family-friendly, easy to
navigate, equitable, and inclusive of all people.
Our Purpose: To support children in building the life skills necessary for well-being by supporting the important adults in their lives to help children develop resiliency skills.
Why We Meet: The following indicators are some of the topics we are tracking which drive the Resiliency Team and illustrate the current state of children’s mental health and well-being:
- Flourishing Behaviors
- Developmental Screening
- Suspensions and Expulsions
How We Improve Systems: Building resilience in children and families equips them with the ability to bounce back in adverse situations. The Resiliency Team has examined how hope, positive childhood factors, and protective factors promote resiliency and build a more resilient population.
Our Current Partners: Members of the Resiliency Team include lived experience leaders, mental health organizations, state departments (Department of Health Services), and non-profit organizations focused on children/families.
We welcome you to join this effort for increased collaboration and coordination. For more information about the Children's Mental Health Collective Impact work, please contact us at OCMH@wisconsin.gov.
